Midfielder Jone Samuelsen from Norwegian club Odd Grenland (awesome name) scored what is thought to be the longest header in the history of soccer last weekend.  With Odd leading Tromso 2-1 entering into injury time on Sunday, the Tromso keeper came forward on a corner kick.  This created the opportunity for Samuelsen to do something that nobody has ever seen before.  As the ball was pinballed around the midfield, Samuelsen launched a header that somehow reached the goalline.  According to the Odd manager, Samuelsen’s header went 57.3 meters.  I can barely run that far, let alone head a soccer ball.  Of course, the video is accompanied by what I assume to be a great and very excited call in Norwegian.
